    Default Wheels?

    I know I read this already in one of the posts but I cant seem to find it now that I'm looking for it-

    If the car is order with carbon fiber wheels, can you switch back to forged wheels by using a open lug nut? (without switching the rotors that offer the longer nut) or is it reversed? The forged wheels allow you to switch with out having to change....

    Thx

    Yup, if you order carbon wheels, you can switch to forged with an open lug. If you order forged, you can't switch to carbon (easily).

    If you order the CF wheels is an option to get a set of forged wheels delivered with the car?

    Try to remember the CF wheels have a thicker flange = Longer studs
